A Long-Standing Legacy Of Excellence

Roach, Brown, McCarthy & Gruber, PC, is a civil litigation and insurance defense law firm in Buffalo, New York. Established in 1900, the firm has undergone various transformations over the years, yet we have maintained a consistent focus on litigation defense, insurance defense and intellectual property. We also have a strong appellate practice.

Our clients range from prominent medical institutions, hospitals, nursing homes and physician practice groups to insurance companies and self-insured businesses across New York.
